Global Meltdown

An inch away is all that it takes
For the world to go insane. 
The people divided beyond repair
Should be the sign that we are in trouble. 
Slightly hanging onto the cliff,
Slipping by every finger. 
Hoping for someone to grab my hand, 
But no one is around to notice. 
"Danger Ahead", the sign reads, 
Though our minds are stuck to the TV. 
Demanding for half-priced furniture, 
While our lives are just rotting away.
The Co2 pandemic has arrived,
But no one seems to care anymore. 
We burn our oil & eat our meat, 
Believing that there will be a tomorrow. 
If only this was a dream, I'd 
Wake up & and all of this would be over.
Though reality stands firm, 
As we all fall into our own graves.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
